I love rich dark red, robust sangrias. The ones filled to brim with sliced oranges and apples loaded with brandy and spices. I reserve that sangria for autumn and winter. This strawberry peach sangria I’m sharing today is far from the traditional Spanish sangria. This is another one of my fun and refreshing summer sangria variations. (See: lychee sangria and stone fruit sangria)
I imagine serving this strawberry peach sangria at a garden brunch, maybe at a Palm Springs pool party, or more realistically, the next time my friends and I see a show at the Hollywood Bowl.
As with all sangrias, my favorite part is eating all the boozy soaked fruits. I used fresh peaches and strawberries. I also added some slices of ginger for a little kick and zing. Instead of brandy, I used limoncello to keep with the light fruity notes. (I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate limoncello into drinks because it reminds me of that time Alex and I went to Italy!)
